Friday, April 18, 2014's Lowdown
Arbitrary numeric milestones are awesome and demand human recognition. This cannot be debated, probably.
Thus, for today’s Lowdown on this. the day of the 30th edition of Missing Link Records’ hugely popular Soul Night at HumBrews, we offer you perhaps the funkiest Vine in the history of vining. Feast your eyes on the one, the only, DJ Mantease warming up for tonights show on KHUM’s Midday Dance Party. That’s six seconds well invested. Either see you on the dance floor tonight, or there are plenty of other Friday night distractions in the listings below. -AG

Godlin Gets Behind
You. GUYS! You will kick yourselves in the shins if you miss Sila Mutungi at the Jambalaya. If you don't kick yourselves, I'll kick your shins for you. He's that good. Do you like lead singers oozzing charisma? Do you like a horn section and shredding guitars? Do you like to dance for hours in a pool of your own sweat? Of course you do. Don't miss this show, y'all.
Soul Night XXX. I can totally see it getting out of hand (see below).
Plus, DJ Mantease turns up for the Mid Day Dance Party™ on KHUM at 12:15 pm. Tune in, bozo!
Hard to pass up Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas at the Arcata Theater Lounge. I can't see this getting out of hand at all. [$5 and under award]
